I took painting lessons about 10 years ago and haven’t done anything since. I brought a 1/2 finished painting. Maggie was great helping me set up and seeing where I was and what I remembered. Then showed me some techniques to help get me going. I’m looking forward to our next lesson.

Maggie is an exceptional teacher who has her classroom management skills down to a tee. It’s amazing to watch her command a classroom full of children while remaining sweet and never losing her cool. She was a great mentor and I learned a lot about art education from her!

First thing I do before first day of class is send out an enthusiastic email and call shortly after. Briefly discussing and establishing the learning goals for the course based on the visual literacy,technical,and intellectual competencies the students should achieve by the end of a period is ideal for me to design the course or update an existing course for the student's desired outcomes. The syllabus and the schedule are completed along with a comprehensive strategy for what will take place during class.

I've sculpted in water-based and oil-based clay. Clay is actually my first love. There is nothing like getting your hands dirty and feeling your creation come alive with your hands.
Students will learn how to build an armature, positioning, posing, creating a scene, showing expressions and emotions.

The most fabulous thing about being an artist is that boundaries regarding creativity are non-existent. The artist is always in a state of learning.

Takelessons doesn't allow teachers to enter multiples of time as variants to include multiple participants participating as a group. So, I had to be creative. :) jfa-studios.com

My approach to teaching Drawing is a non-traditional, non-textbook way to drawing lessons. I will nurture the inner artist in you while having fun with it. I know that it can be intimidating at first, but drawing is supposed to be fun! I'll show you how. :)

Or If you feel the need to something more than just the basics, I will instruct you to further your technique and skill in drawing, free you from the creative blocks you may have, and help unleash that inner draftsman!

About Glen

Looking to merge art and growth? I have been teaching emotional intelligence (aka EQ) classes all over Alberta and BC for the last 3 years from ages 5 - 95. There are lots of painting classes out there, but very few about healing through art.

What is Emotional Intelligence? EQ is an umbrella term for how we relate to ourselves and to others. Self awareness, self management, social awareness and relationship management are key factors to having a high EQ.

Even though these skills are crucial in any community or society, we are often never taught these concepts. Why? Because emotions are greatly understudied. Emotions are messy. They are unpredictable. They hinder left brain thinking that Western culture prides itself on. However, without these vitally important competencies, we are left wondering why we didn't get that job, why we are fighting with loved ones, why we seemingly can't stick to our work out plans and why our world is in a very critical state

About Andrea

Welcome! thanks for taking a moment to scroll. I have taught classes all around Alberta and BC and I teach traditional drawing and painting. Currently, I am most excited to teach 'painting With Purpose: Emotional intelligence Through Art' classes. They are a series of three classes called Connect W

I attended one of Andrea’s ‘Emotional Intelligence Through Art’ workshops about a year ago, and it’s been one my of favorite tools for creative expression since then. Like Bob Ross, Andrea has a knack for making art accessible to everyone, and holds a space where everyone feels like an artist. Her facilitation style weaves together both guidance and independence for the artist, in which I felt safe and inspired to paint my deepest emotions. It was pure joy and connection getting to be a part of this experience!

I attended ‘Painting with a Purpose’ with my daughter. Andrea was super great at making color and expression with color accessible to all ages and personality types. She was thorough with her instructions and easy to listen to and learn from. I would definitely recommend her class!

I had a great abstract painting session with Roya. She had some sample pictues of the abstract art style I like. She gave me a bit of background about what it entails. I felt comfortable getting started and she gave me the direction I was looking for. Thanks!!!

Roya is a wonderfully energetic, hands on art teacher, who has moved my oil painting from mundane to lively & exciting. My lessons with Roya are such a pleasure. The lessons are geared toward helping me grow in areas I expressed a need for, as well as filling in weaknesses which her expertise recognizes need working on.

"Amber is very talented! I wanted to learn to draw people realistically and before I started learning from Amber, I did not use charcoal much. Amber specifically targets the lessons and will help you reach your goals. I feel much more comfortable with charcoal. It feels good to have a finished product by the end of the lesson and to be proud of your work. Amber is talented also in teaching and has a very kind personality. I look forward to our lessons."

She is a calming and professional energy that guides you along the first few movements. At the end of the class she summed up what the next steps would be, making sure to set me up for success. I will definitely be signing up again!"

"I have always felt like I had a creative impulse I needed to express, but felt like I needed some solidified skills to be able to begin. I felt nervous about starting to learn something new at my age, but from the first conversation I had with Jessica, I knew I would feel absolutely at ease learning with her. Jessica is both an experienced educator and a truly inspired artist. One of the first things she taught me was how to look at the world around me differently and in a more open way that allowed me to translate that to paper. It was exhilarating. Jessica is absolutely lovely, knowledgeable and provides tangible instructions that are showing their effect on paper! I am so thrilled with the work I am creating with her continued instruction. I cannot more highly reccommend studying with Jessica!"
